ST. LOUIS - With his team trailing and on the power play in the third period, Blues prospect Jordan Kyrou took matters into his own hands and went coast-to-coast for an amazing highlight reel goal that you need to see to believe.
Kyrou, who is just 18 years old, took the puck from behind his own net, cruised through the neutral zone with ease and weaved his way through four opposing defenders before sliding the puck five-hole on Flint Firebirds goalie Garrett Forrest.
Kyrou was drafted by the Blues last summer with a second round pick (35th overall), which they acquired in a trade with Calgary for goaltender Brian Elliott. Kyrou has played in 59 games with the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League this season, posting 29 goals and 56 assists.
His 85 points rank currently fourth overall in the OHL.
